Jon Billian (aka “Jonny Retro”) first met up with Eric Eldredge in 1999 while beginning a synth-punk group, and also being informed of another local EBM/industrial act looking for members. When both of those projects fell through, Eric had mentioned that Interface was about to return to the stage to begin supporting The Artemis Complex and could use a new lineup. The rest, they say…
Jon has remained Interface’s live keyboardist for nearly two decades, and in the studio often contributes with synth and sampling work. In addition to keyboards, he is also a guitarist and an early adopter of the Misa Digital Tri-Bass.
His current onstage rig is a combination of Access Music, Novation, and Arturia gear.
Jon is originally from Nevada (by way of Southern California) and is also a trained paramedic and law enforcement officer.
